Cashless Claims in Health Insurance: Why is it important?
Health insurance has always been one of those few instruments that we don’t pay too much attention to. However, it is one of the most crucial investments that we make, which helps us in emergencies. While most of us look for a decent cover scheme at a nominal premium, an ideal health insurance provides several benefits that we may often overlook. The rising cost of medical care in India, combined with the hassle that some claims have made people experience, is finally making us put some serious thought into what we are opting for. So, what makes an ideal health insurance? While there are several features that your health insurance policy needs, there is one which is, hands down, the most important one – cashless claim settlement.

Why is cashless claim important?
One of the most common financial hassles that we face at hospitals is paying the fees, deposits and handling all the other lengthy paperwork that comes with any medical emergency. At a time when we would like to stay with our family and support them, we are left managing the documents and cash, which merely adds to the emotional stress. With a cashless claim, you can avoid these hassles and make the process swifter and quicker. It takes away the stress of arranging and handling cash too, which becomes especially helpful in cases of emergencies.
